August 1, 2016

1. The power hungry bouncers

These ones want you to call them “chairman” one million times before they allow you enter, even though you have an invite.

2. The dancing waiter

There’s always one waiter that forgets his tray carrying work and starts giving some hot steps!

3. The enthusiastic photographer

Ready to lie down on the dance-floor to get the “perfect shot”. Baba take it easy oh!

4. The cassanova groomsman

Every woman there is a possible target. No one is safe oh! Not even great grandmothers.

5. The very excited mother of the bride

This is actually her wedding. The bride and groom are just attending.

6. The desperate bridesmaid

She wants to meet every single eligible bachelor there and treats the tossing of the bouquet like it’s an olympic sport.

7. The tipsy uncle

Has a little to drink and starts disturbing all the bride’s friends even though his wife is watching him.

8. The stingy caterer

These ones act like they are not being paid to provide food oh. So stingy!

9. The “mo gbo mo ya” guest

Does not know the bride or groom. Came strictly for the party with no shame or regrets!

10. The souvenir hustler

Ready to fight for her right to that bucket and bottle opener if need be!

11. The bored cousin

There is always a relative of the bride or groom that is clearly attending the wedding by force and is not happy to be there.

12. The judging aunties

They are there to pass judgement on any and everyone at that event. Including you!

13. The oversabi couple

It’s not their wedding but everyone must see they are in love at someone else’s wedding oh!
